What should be the length of a SOP for Canadian and HK Universities? If possible could someone enlist the aspects that an Undergraduate SOP must cover?

In general, an SOP must not be over 600 - 800 words. Remember that admissions officers have to read thousands of these so the shorter and more to the point your SOP is, the better. You should focus on your interest in the area you are applying to at university, talk about what you have done in the past that led you to develop your interest in this area, what are the courses you are taking now and what you are learning that is helping you make sure that you have chosen the correct course for your future.

How easy is it to transfer to University of Amsterdam from Lazaridis School of Business (BBTM Program) of Wilfrid Laurier University in the second year?

You will need to first need to check with University of Amsterdam whether they accept transfer students. After that, you can go the next step of checking whether they allow credit transfer. Then, you have to find out if they will recognise Canadian courses for awarding credits. All of this can only be done if you contact University of Amsterdam directly. Good luck and hope this helps.

I have been admitted to Wilfrid Laurier University (BBTM Program). I accepted the offer but I’m confused since it’s not a university known worldwide and have no idea habout how good the job opportunities are once I’m done with the 4 year program.

 Congratulations on getting into the BBTM program! I like this program, as it integrates business and technology into the Bachelor of Business degree. Another great thing about this program is that every student needs to do a culminating co-op program, meaning that you work in an actual company while getting academic credit at the same time. Co-op programs are terrific for building your resume, giving you very useful skills in what you are studying, and making you more marketable once you graduate. Co-op job opportunities are available in the many high-tech companies and in the IT departments of companies around Ontario.....View More

I’m an indian from Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). I recently got an offer letter from Wilfrid Laurier University,Canada. It’s conditions said that I need 67% overall in my grade 12 while 60 % + in math and English subject particularly. I got my result today and I got 80% overall, 93 in English specifically but I got 57 in math. I’m worried. Please help!

Hi there, first of all good job on the 80% overall. Also congrats on getting into Wilfrid Laurier, which has some terrific co-op programs. You should call them on Monday and let them know your situation, to see what they would suggest, as I cannot predict what they will say. I honestly hope that this works out for you! If not, let me know, and I can help you with some solutions for how to move on now.

Could you please educate me regarding student loans in Canada?

Geetha Swamy Answered 6 months ago

There are no student loans available for international students in Canada. Students are eligible for financial aid at some universities and many of them offer merit scholarships for top students. Some universities also offer a one time entrance bursary. There are some merit scholarships that you will need to specifically apply for or you may have to be nominated by your school.

Hi, I’m a science student from India and opted for PCM stream but want to pursue Business Technology in Canada. I recently received the offer letters from the universities and have 2 months to get prepared for the same. I’m not sure if it would be difficult or easy for me to change the subjects. I wanted to know about the important subjects which I need to prepare for so that I don’t face any problems regarding the same. Thankyou.

Hi, congratulations on your offers. The offers are given keeping in mind the subjects you already have . If the offer mentions a GPA in a certain subject and you don't have that subject in your curriculum, ask the admissions team (via email) whether you can opt for a foundation course in the same when admitted. Good luck!

Are there any Canadian or UK universities that give need based aid to international students?

Geetha Swamy Answered 5 months ago

Sure, there are! Obviously it all depends on merit as all scholarships do. It is difficult for me to list the schools that give scholarships but there are some great schools that have the money to spare for international students. You need to decide on your schools and let me know and I can give you a clearer answer.

Universities in Canada and the UK don't require submitting SAT scores, but if I do, will it make my application more competitive? And how much of a difference will it make?

If you have a strong SAT score, I see no reason not to send them to the universities in Canada and the UK to show your talent. Just as in the US, when SAT Subject tests and AP scores are not required, we suggest that you send them anyway, to make sure you are putting your best foot forward. It is hard to say how much they will help, but if they are good they will definitely not hurt.

Hi, I chose Business Technology Management at Wilfried Laurier University, Canada. But I ended up getting Arts with Management Program. I’m not sure of it. Please help me know the job aspects, expected freshmen salary, overall program, and some particular subjects in it which would help me conquer the business world too.

Within the Faculty of Arts, there are many fields of study; do not be confused by the word "arts."  For example, within the Faculty of Arts, you can study math, physics, financial mathematics, data science, and much more.  When you get to the point that you're searching for a job, employers do not exclusively look at your field of study. They will also consider what courses you've taken, your drive, your ability to take initiative, your motivation for wanting that position and to work at their company, your ability to solve problems, your ability to work in a group, your....View More

Is 1290 a decent score to apply to a good American university or is it better to apply in Canada?

Tom O'Keefe Answered 4 months ago

While 1290 is on the lower side for the most elite American colleges and universities, admissions processes at all of these schools are comprehensive/holistic, and that score is certainly high enough not to be disqualifying. It is best to consider your test scores, grades, athletic/extracurricular activities, personal passions, work experiences, and overall life narrative in assessing the strength of your application rather than simply focusing on an SAT score.

First of all, you need good grades. I would advise you to take the IELTS for proof of English Proficiency with a score of 7 or above. Other than that, good grades help.
